a slightly different take on piccolo strings...

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Stewmc5222, Oct 1, 2002.


  1. does anyone know of a company winding a six-string configuration (B-E-A-D-G-C) of piccolo strings in 34" scale length? I have a couple of knockaround sixes that I'm considering restringing to add a different texture to some recordings. anyone? Bueller?

    thanks,

  2. find yourself a 12 string set (6'er doubled(octaves)) and just use the octave strings. This is what i considered doing when i wanted piccolo strings for my old 4 string (actual piccolo strings are impossible to get over here)

  3. thanks, Si. I wouldn't have even stopped to consider that as an option! :D

    take care and take it easy,
